I understood when I had 4 kids ages 5 and under, why I was exhausted and clueless. I mean really, lack of sleep, feeling like a dairy cow for about 4 or so years, life was expectedly crazy!
And now, I have a house full of (mostly) elementary school kids – one pre-teen. I did not expect it to still require so much of me. So often I feel like I have no idea what to do next. Whew.
While I love to be deep in a great book, parenting books are not my favorite genre. I prefer some great Christian Fiction above most others. However, in this season of parenting I am turning back to some great books that I hope to gleam some great wisdom from. So, these days you can find me reading and taking copious notes from Shepherding a Child’s Heart and Grace Based Parenting.
I have read both of these books before, but never side by side.
